    Hey guys,

    First off I decided to post this under 'Trail Q&A' instead of 'Rig Q&A' because the thread has to do with the type of trail / terrain these tires perform best in.

    For the last 30,000 miles I have been rolling around on 35'' BFG KO2's. These are some outstanding tires and most of the time I don't even have to air down on the sugar sand and rock to get traction. The BFG KO2 tires have some serious engineering woven into them to the point where I don't know if I personally think it is worth the upgrade to the new BFG KM3's.

    Now, I have zero experience with these KM3 tires. I have only heard good things about these tires from guys who have run them via a Sponsor from BFG. These tires do seem like a better performer by a slight margin, however is that margin worth the 30% more cost per tire?

    I will be needing a new set of (4) very soon and I have been contemplating these KM3 tires for some time now. On the flip side I have been content with these KO2s and see almost NO need in the minor upgrade in performance. I will be moving to Colorado and intend on using this rig as my daily driver as well as the weekend warrior. Feel free to express your opinions on which I should go for. I am very indecisive.
